How to Properly Apply Eyeshadow Sticks
Cream eyeshadow comes in the form of sticks. These sticks are easy to use because you can apply these with eyeshadow brushes or your fingertips. I will show you two techniques to create a simple eye makeup that would achieve a natural finish and look great but won’t take too long to apply. Technique 1: Using One Cream Shadow Always choose a versatile shade (I suggest browns or champagne shades of which can be either Shimmer or Matte) that will go with anything that you may choose to wear or suit any time or occasion. Trust me, this will save you time and always give you the naturally gorgeous look. Apply a bit of your chosen shade of eyeshadow on the main eyelid area. Then, with your fingertip or a brush, blend the shadow from the lash line to the crease with pressing and padding motions. This will avoid any sharp lines being left and merge the shade with your natural skin tone. If you need a more intense look, you may add a bit more of the eyeshadow and repeat the blending process before the first layer dries. And don’t forget to apply a bit of mascara to highlight your eyes. This is the way to achieve the most dramatic effect with a single shade of eyeshadow. Technique 2: Using Two Shades of Eyeshadow Often you may find that you need to deepen the look of your eyes. Then, I suggest you use one more shade of eyeshadow. Apply the basic shade of eyeshadow as described above. Now, to apply the second shade, choose one that is a bit darker than the one you selected as the basic shade. Both these shades may be of matte or shimmer variety, whichever you prefer. Apply the darker eyeshadow stick at the outer corner of the eye. Begin with a small quantity because you can apply more if you need a darker shade. Use either your fingertip or a dense eyeshadow brush to blend the darker shade beginning from the outer corner into the main lid shadow and, if you prefer, spread it to through to the crease as well. For this application, I would recommend using a brush to keep the focus to the outer corner and, if you like to, into the crease. Add a bit of mascara and you’re done!
